I currently have 2 15' Audiobahn subs in a bandpass box. I read through some posts and read that bandpass boxes are prety hard to tune and get a good all around sound. My question is im thinking about buying a sealed box that holds 2 15' subs and was wondering if im guna notice a change in the bass or sound at all and if its even worth it.

i dont know bout the sound but i would prob say yes. Try a search.
I had 2 audiobahn 12" and they sounded better in a proted box vs. a sealed box. But the 15"s might be different. but then im not a expert either. :)
Maybe someone else will chime in and help u out.
BC this porb didnt help much.

It could be a night and day difference or barely any difference, it all depends in the differences in the enclosures and how the driver reacts. Typically though, you will get more output from bandpasses, but lose some SQ and lose bandwidth. When going to the sealed box you should gain extended frequency response, and depending on the QTC it may sound smooth or peaky.
But I'm no expert, I dont believe too many ppl to be...
